Trimble Access coordinate systems names have changed

2015_20 coord - CopyTrimble reorganized the coordinate systems in Trimble Access version 2015.20 and higher.

Users opening an upgraded Wisconsin county coordinate job in the newer version may now see the projection labeled as “Local Site” as if the project had a site calibration applied but this is just due to the fact that the name of the systems available in the library have changed.

Trimble renamed a few systems to group the systems. Seiler has spoken to Trimble on the possible issues involved with renaming the system from the actual name Wisconsin County Coordinate System (WCCS) to a more generic name because of the fact that there are at least two county systems in Wisconsin; WCCS and Wisconsin Coordinate Reference Systems (WISCRS). This may be addressed in a future release.

Below is a partial list of the newly reorganized list in Trimble Access 2015.20 or later

Trimble Installation Manger (TIM) or the web based tool fileconversions.trimbleaccess.com do properly upgrade the jobs. The actual name of the coordinate system is different.

To verify the project projection information without changing the job settings, you can use the Jobs — Review Job to review the newly upgraded job  and see that the proper projection parameters did carry over.
